Liverpool target given €7m price tag

Josip Ilicic looks likely to leave Fiorentina this summer, with his agent talking up a potential move to the Premier League.

Fiorentina have had a good season in Serie A and look likely to qualify for the Europa League as they currently sit in fourth place.

One man that could well be on his way out of the Stadio Artemio Franchi however is Josip Ilicic.

The talented Slovenian midfielder moved to Florence from Palermo in the summer but has found first-team opportunities hard to come by of late.

The player’s agent has been speaking about a potential transfer at the end of the current campaign, with a fee in the region of €7 million stated as enough for Fiorentina to sell him.

“I think the price Fiorentina paid for Josip could be their only mistake,” Bernardo Brovarone told Radio Blu.

“But if someone came in with €7m or so, then maybe that would be taken into consideration by the hierarchy.”

Ilicic has only started 11 games this term, with the likes of Anderson, Alberto Aquilani and others preferred by coach Vincenzo Montella.

The 26-year-old’s ability on the ball and range of passing would suit the Premier League, and Liverpool have been linked with a move for the eastern European playmaker in the past.

Brendan Rodgers will be looking for summer reinforcements at the end of the campaign, and given Ilicic’s situation may well be tempted to launch a bid for him.
